If you have ever been to a Ruby's, you know that this restaurant emulates diners of the 50's, not that I would know...Anyways..this Ruby's has one more advantage than any other Ruby's..that is it sits on the Huntington Beach Pier. What more could you ask for? The food is typical Ruby's fare which is GREAT...hamburgers, shakes, and the like! If... More

We ate early as we knew this place/ location was popular. The brekkie was awesome, I had the pancakes and only managed one! Loved the authenticity of Ruby's, the uniforms are brilliant. As we dined we watched a fisherman land two baby sharks, pretty amazing to watch.

We arrived in the early evening and my wife wanted to go to the end of the pier. As it was very windy we enjoyed the opportunity to get inside. On the second floor you have a great view on the sea and back to the beach.

We went there for brunch at 11:30 on Monday. About 10 minutes wait for a table even though it appeared half empty.

We no longer live in California, but always enjoy coming back to Ruby's. Fun atmosphere, good service, great diner food, and beautiful view. We came for a snack lunch. If you like clam chowder, it is the best! The fried calamari was also very tasty. And the shakes are creamy and delicious!

Went there on my daughter's birthday after a full day playing at Huntington Beach. The restaurant served fantastic food and the wait was not long considering how busy they were. Staff was friendly and it was a great experience.
